Did it seem a little petty for one of the game's great players to tweet sour grapes about the officials and fans?
But Peterson had just come up short in a remarkable back-and-forth game, one he'd largely had to sit out because of a freak ankle injury.
There were a few questionable calls, including an upheld Minnesota fumble that set up the Ravens' first touchdown.
If he could step back, he might grasp that any snow-ball throwing amounted to the fans participating in a big, giddy spectacle of a game.
But great athletes aren't always big-picture thinkers. The same ferocity that allowed Peterson to fight back from a knee injury with unprecedented speed led him to be a bit thin-skinned after his rough afternoon in Baltimore.
Give him a pass.
